I asked for an enhancement quite a few months ago and someone actually
did it very quickly. However, I still don't have it because I haven't
gotten around to learning how to build from source/git (I know there are
instructions on this list and elsewhere). I have to be an end user at
least some of the time so I can actually get something done other than
maintaining my system.
In short, it would be really nice if releases happened more often.
Awhile back, before I upgraded to kubuntu lucid, I tried using a
kphotoalbum ppa, but it was incompatible with my system. Maybe with
lucid it would work now. I don't want to be on the bleeding edge, just
further along than the last official release.
I also have a newer notebook (for my partner) which is running kubuntu
oneiric and the pictures are hers, so I could easily manage them on that
notebook if using the newer distribution release would help.
